FOOTBALL: Keith following Cirencester Town in aid of good cause
2:01pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in Sport
CIRENCESTER TOWN'S newest fan will be in the crowd at the Corinium Stadium when the side take on Weymouth in Saturday's FA Cup 3rd Round Qualifying tie.
Keith Raymond is on a nationwide mission to watch a match in every round of the FA Cup in a fundraising initiative for the MS SOCIETY UK.
That's 14 matches from the Extra Preliminary Round on August 17 to the Wembley final on May 17 next year - not including replays.
"I picked out Horndean FC in the very beginning as they are reasonably close to me in Gosport, Hampshire, and watched them
until they were beaten," said Keith. "I then followed their victors until they are beaten and so on
"My fourth match was when AFC Portchester came to Cirencester and I will be back on Saturday to watch the Weymouth game - and continue to watch Ciren until they are knocked out.
"Cirencester could not have been more helpful to my cause last Saturday and I am very glad to be visiting them again.
"Scott Griffin (office manager) was a tremendous advocate for the club and non league football as a whole, and deserves a serious thank you for his willingness to help me raise funds to beat this awful disease, which my wife has suffered with for more than 18 years."

Keith added: "To date I have raised £457, with more donations to come in. I am currently trying to get a sponsor to help with the petrol/ travelling as that is my biggest expense."
